2020 may have been a hard year, but that has clearly not stopped the young people of America from pursuing their dreams and a higher education! We at The Bussey Law Firm, P.C., have been hard at work for the past few weeks reading all of your essays for the 2021 New Heights Scholarship. This has been no easy task. We had an incredible 827 sent into the firm. Nothing could make us happier, however, as this purpose of this scholarship is to encourage the students of today to continue their education and reach for new heights!
We at The Bussey Law Firm, P.C., have a particular passion for education as our founder, Timothy R. Bussey, has dedicated a great deal of his life to the pursuit of new knowledge. Even after founding a successful law firm, Bussey still continues to find new areas to study that help both him and his clients. Considering how important education is to this firm, we are thrilled to be able to offer one current student $1,000 to help further his or her studies.
Now that the deadline of April 14, 2021, has passed, we had the difficult task of selecting our finalists. This has not been easy, as many of the essays submitted to us were truly excellent. After careful consideration, our finalists are:
- Ariella W. – Acworth, GA
- Rico G. – Denver, CO
- Cindy L. – San Jose, CA
- Leah M. – Labadie, MO
- Nicolas R. – Davie, FL
- Jasmine M. – Alta Loma, CA
Congratulations! Despite the mountain of essays that we had to look through, your work shone through. You have proven yourselves to be dedicated, passionate, and determined. Getting to know you through your essays has truly been a privilege. Sadly, we can only pick one to be our winner, which means we at The Bussey Law Firm, P.C., have to get back to work! We will announce the winner on May 12, 2021. For any further updates, please take a look at our blog and our Facebook page.
Thank you to everyone who submitted an essay. Even if you were not selected for this year’s batch of finalists, that does not mean you did not submit incredible work. We greatly enjoyed getting to know each and every one of you. We hope that you will try again next year. For now, all of the attorneys at The Bussey Law Firm, P.C., wish you luck on the rest of your year!
